Standard Marine BoomsThe standard boom comes in 3m lengths with two diameters of 12cm and 20cm. The standard version is better suited to spillages of low-viscosity oils or fuels in slow-moving water environments.
Spaghetti BoomsThe spaghetti boom also comes in 3M lengths and diameters of 12cm and 20cm. This version of the oil boom is designed to better deal with thicker petroleum-based spills and is capable of operating on faster-moving water.
DeploymentAll oil booms have a length of rope running inside and along the length of the boom, not only to give extra strength but to prevent the booms from becoming over-stretched. Metal rings attached to the ends of the booms allow them to be joined together to create the desired overall length. Whilst the booms themselves have a large absorbent capacity they are usually used in conjunction with other absorbent materials such as oil spill pads or mechanical water skimmers and vacuums. In this case, the booms are used to round up and contain a spill into a smaller and usually more convenient location before other equipment deals with absorbing or retrieving the hydrocarbon.
Mini BoomsMini oil booms, 50cm in length, are ideal for oil/diesel spills in small, tight and confined spaces such as drains, sumps or settling tanks. They can be lowered by a rope (not supplied), tied off the retrieved after sufficient absorbency time has elapsed.
